LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- De Novo Software is pleased to announce that FCS Express ® 4 Image Cytometry Software is now able to read data from Life Technologies' the Tali ® Image Based Cytometer. FCS Express can import images, segmentation and feature data for data analysis and report generation.
Leveraging a long history of excellence in Flow Cytometry data analysis, FCS Express 4 Image Cytometry adds the ability to access and interactively perform population-based analysis, while linking back to the individual images that underlie the data. This enables highlighting of individual cells in an image from selected populations or display of single cells of interest in separate cell galleries. Modules for cell cycle analysis also allow quick and easy modeling of cell cycle assays with imaging data.
David Novo, De Novo Software's president said: "The Tali Image Based Cytometer is a revolutionary product, combining sophisticated imaging capabilities at an extremely affordable price. By working with Life Technologies directly, we are able to offer their customers immediate access to powerful population based analysis capabilities."
According to Shulamit Jaron, Ph.D., Sr. R&D Manager at Life Technologies, "The Tali Imaged Based Cytometer has proven itself to be a great tool for some basic cell health assays including viability and apoptosis. Now users can also perform cell cycle analysis using a one-step, cell cycle staining solution designed specifically for use with the Tali Instrument and subsequently analyze the data with FCS Express. In keeping with the Tali Instrument's ease of use, we have created a pre-made FCS Express layout so that Tali Cell Cycle data imported into FCS Express 4 Imaging is automatically modeled and the cell cycle stages identified."For more information, visit www.lifetechnologies.com/Tali. In FCS Express 4 analytical tools for flow and image cytometry are combined into one environment with report generation, high speed batch processing, and on-line collaboration tools.
